was resumed today at Coates' bridge a'cout

mastered at an earlv bouraboet the dormi-
tory at Coates' Bridge occupied by non

V ashinoton Jan. 6. But seven senators
were present at 10 o'clock when tbe vice
president called the senate to order. After
the lapse of three-quarters ofanbour sev
eral members appeared and tbe journal of
yesterday's proceedings were read and ap-
proved. Tbe morning business having been
concluded tbe senate losumed consideration
of the fiaancial bill and was addressed by
Senator Teller. . -'
During tbe three hours of bis speech Sen-
ator Teller discussed toe section of the bill
providing for the purc'iasa of $11! 0(0000 of
niliy.'r. He said that Le washed his hands
of the resnonMibilitv for that. He had no
i int ireat or sy tanatby with men who specu-
. ) I . v. .. A i : tZ. .1...
in nuvrj. i.t uitu ueeil Btuu iu bus
public press and in another place (meaning
tbe house of representatives) that when the
silver bill of last Boston passed a large
number of senators were holders of silver
bullion. If that was so be bad never bea d
of it; as far as he wes j.ersonally concerned
he had -ver' owned an ounce of
silver except in til ver dollars or
half dollars. lie had never
engaged in sraculafior.-of that character or
o; aoi pthi'i character and had no sym-
tstny with rnei: who houeht silver and put
it up or put it down. The pending bill was
not brought forward in the interest of the
silver states. If Vl. (0000 of silver were in
the hands of the miners of Colorado there
would not' have been he asserted any
anxiety to buy it t p. But it was in the
bauds of people in political and financial
circles in New Yorii und that was the rea-
son why there was so much anxiety about
it to concern otbeis. The proposition
bad t ome from New York and not from the
silver states lie opposed tbe fourth sec-
tion of the bill which provides for the issue
of 2O0OCO OCK) of 2 per cent bonds. It was
Tel er asserted in the interest of classes-
only the silver speculators of New York
and the banJcern oi' tbe country. It abso-
lutely ignored the veople or the United
States and their demands for more money
lie alluded to tbe silver act of the last ses-
sion as a mere ..makeshifts and said
there was but on - sure . method and
tbiit was ;he free coinage .of
silver. .Th sen ifot .' -ora Ohio had told
tin. senate yiv terunf that free coinage
mid not be ene ;;i e j ato a law. Had the
'jf-nator sjioVi.il ior t:.- house of repsesenta-
f.vis.v or spoken f r another tribunal to
vhich the till wouid iiave to go he (Teller)
cud not core for wl. )m fhe senator bad
MP 'l'.en. Ha comti not speak for him nor
or tve majority of senators on his side of
the cba;iibi'c. if s-nators believed that
free coinage wes s-e; tial to the welfare of
the countr.v n was their duty to vote for it.
The other bi'Kuch ot . congress could
Mse or iefeac ii ; The president
t.otdd iign it or decline to. It was the
business of senr-tors to legislate according
to their jadi:un;nt nud thut was what he
proposed io .Io .1
Sen tor bberman taid he would at some
future time ropiy to J'eneT's remarks but

Senator Vest nreued- in favor of free

mont lie S4i;l tia.l Hnoken of the Demo-
cratic parrj- haV-ing lucid inter. als and
had haul at lea a by implication that every
public man who favored free coinage was
Htilicted with a sort of financial lunacy.
Between the t so classes the Democrats'
purse and .rhe ci.iiens of the United
8a's who fdvorod free silver coin-
hire senators (if tbe senator from
Vermont were correct) were living in a
very larjre le-istic asylum because the last
election had drs-eioped the fact that tbe en-
tire face of the country .was covered with
Democrats and iV?-- ro nage people. Senator
Vest went on to allude to the statement
that be bad received a letter from ex Presi-
dent Cleveland recounting some of his
vit.wn on the silver (u38tion and said that
that was n mere figment of
the imagination coming from some
newspaper aooice. and that it bad
not the slightest fo-.u .dation. He never bad
o letter from Cleveland on the silver ques-
ion and had never had a conversation with
him on that subject. All that be (Vest)
had ever said wis thot he had reason to be-
lieve that Cleveland had after futherex-
amination modilied to s'ome extent his
opinion in regard to tree coinage of silver.
At the cloje of Senator Vest's remarks
the senate went into executive session and
